GT’s latest downhill bike, we think it is fair to say, has been a game changer for Gee and Rachel Atherton in 2013; one of the factors contributing to their many successes over the year.
GT FURY WORLD CUP
With this bike GT have been the first company to produce a DH bike with a wheelbase that breaks the 50” barrier, and we think that fact alone is a contributing factor to Gee and Rachel Atherton’s World Cup success in 2013. Even Rachel’s medium is bigger than most companies’ larges, and when the going gets fast and rough that extra bit of length can make a huge bit of difference. We really think that the Fury shows the way forward for DH bike geometry, and if you’re over 6ft tall you really should try one of these bikes out, it’ll be an eye opener. Oh, and this bike just goes to show that you don’t need to make a frame out of carbon in order for it to be a winner.
